With filming starting later on this summer the “Thor 2″ casting has gone into full swing (pun…very much intended) Marvel is looking to choose the right actor for a certain villain role and has apparently set their eyes on Casino Royale baddie, Mads Mikkelsen.
Variety is reporting that Mads is up for a villainous role in Marvels “Thor 2″.
“It is unknown at this time what part he will play, but what is known is that his Tom Hiddleston, who played Loki in the original, will still have a big part as an antagonist. Marvel and Disney declined to comment on the casting.”
Best known for his role as the villain in “Casino Royale,” Mikkelsen’s pic “The Hunt” recently bowed at Cannes. He’s currently shooting “The Neccessary Death of Charlie Countryman” starring Shia LaBeouf.
Let the speculation on his role begin!
Perhaps The Executioner? There has already been quite a bit of speculation as to The Enchantress being the villain.
Marvel has scheduled “Thor 2″ for Nov. 15, 2013
